  • Survey Results: Marines heaviest drinkers

    Not sure whether to be proud over this or not....
    Binge drinking and increased use of e-cigarettes among service members are two of the behavioral trends Defense Department officials need to address, according to researchers who analyzed the most recent DoD Health Related Behaviors Survey.

    About one-third of the service personnel surveyed met the criteria indicating hazardous drinking and possible alcohol use disorder, with 30 percent reporting that they binge drank in the past month. Among Marines, that figure jumped to 42.6 percent.
    In other news, commissaries will begin to sell alcohol, making it easier to purchase booze on base. Yep.

      LOL, we call them wax pencils. Sounds better. Haven't used one in ages, but the Navy still uses them in CIC.

          There's another report from the San Diego Union Tribune on the RAND study.

          Looks like the Marines lead in almost all categories, except for 'Sexually Transmitted Infection', glad we didn't 'win' that one! The report goes on to say,
          In other words, the type of person who joins the Marines is not necessarily the type of person who joins the Air Force. The Navy came in second in alcohol use, followed by the Coast Guard and the Army.
          Guess the Naval services like to party!

          The above is also a function of demographics:
          “We’re not trying to blame anyone for this, but the Marine Corps does tend to stand out,” she said. “Each of the services has their own culture.”

          Meadows said one of the reasons the Marines stand out is simple demographics.

          “Marines tend to be young men,” she said. “Compared to young men on college campuses, it’s pretty similar.”

                          I thought this one way funny.
